Dogs meet God

A Beaconsfield church finds a way to fill some pews.

“Animals deserve our care and respect,” Tass told the Montreal Gazette. “If we can bring dogs to church, how can we turn around and abuse them?”

“It’s a discussion we need to have in society,” she said.

The service focused on the special bond of companionship between dog and humans and was attended by about 50 worshippers and 30 canines.

The dogs ranged from a Chihuahua puppy that could fit in the palm of your hand to a 50-kg-plus bulldog. Most of the pets sat in people’s laps, while the bigger ones stood in the aisles.

“It was moving, I got very emotional,” Tasse told The Canadian Press, adding that sometimes, however, dogs will be dogs. “I have to admit it was a bit of a zoo. There was a lot of barking.”
